Engine Lab

[cycloneslider id="engine-lab"]

DYNOmite diesel dynamometers and custom industrial engine-testing systems are state-of-the-art dynos. All feature sophisticated data-acquisition electronics and incredibly powerful performance ratio formerly unheard of for professional, computerized dynamometers.

Typical diesel dynos include: 19" heavy-duty toroidal water-brake or large eddy-current absorber, S-beam electronic torque transducer, high-flow manual (or optional electronic) engine load control, DYNOmite data-acquisition computer, rigid-frame engine test stand, wall (or stand) mounted control console, absorber to engine-block mounting adapter, heavy-duty input shaft, calibration arm, stainless-braided hoses, and full-function data wiring harness.

Diesel Dynamometer Tuning

Engine Dyno Service

Predators full tuning engine lab features a state-of-the-art DYNOmite diesel engine dyno. Designed to handle up to 2,000-hp and 4,000-ft/lbs of torque, our dyno facility provides advanced high performance engine dyno testing and tuning for street performance, drag, circle track, road racing, and off-road race engines. Predator’s dyno cell is designed and manufactured for maximum performance and durability, as well as unequaled data acquisition capabilities. The DYNOmite data-acquisition is computer controlled with all critical engine functions monitored, automatically recording true Hp, torque, RPM, elapsed time, etc. at up to 1,000 readings per second (per channel). It can apply inertia compensation and SAE atmospheric correction factors.
